Went on a night they had live music which was good fun. The place was quite busy and made for a good atmosphere. Food is reasonable value for money, has an authentic Italian taste to it and the staff were friendly and attentive. I would recommend the warm pizza bread to start as this was very good.

The food is good here & tastes pretty much authentic Italian. Not much atmosphere beside busy main road. I thought the prices a little high for Mexico. There seemed to be some issue the night we were there and service was a little surly. It seemed a bit cheeky then to suggest a range of tips from 10% to 20%... More

My husband and I rented a car and drive to tulum from a Puerto Morales resort. I had seen this restaurant the night before on trip advisor and so happy to find it! Went in at about 2 pm.

Had dinner with a few friends last night. Not impressed. Wine was very good and so was the bread and salad. The entrées were not. Pasta was under cooked and the sauces were bland. The chicken curry was just potatoes and a bit of chicken. Service was very good.

We decided to have a change from Mexican food and went to Sale e Pepe for Italian. Now, I am not Italian and do not profess to be a food expert, but the food we had (lasagne and bolognese respectively) was great- tasty and affordable. The service was great- very welcoming and friendly- and the two french bulldogs were entertaining!... More
